Devil Rays update

With the youngest team in baseball, Tampa Bay probably won't make it out of the American League East basement this year, but the Devil Rays have gone 18-16 since July 3, and they just finished a stretch of 20 games against teams above .500. They are 7-6 against the Orioles this season, but the clubs haven't met since May 18, before Brian Roberts and Luis Matos joined the Orioles' roster. Carl Crawford, who turned 22 last week, leads the American League with 34 steals. Rocco Baldelli, 21, had two hits yesterday, raising his batting average back to .300. Aubrey Huff leads the Devil Rays with 19 home runs and 63 RBIs. Tampa Bay still has the youngest team in the majors, with an average age of 26.45 years. Kennedy enters tonight's start looking for his first win since May 13. The left-hander is 0-4 with a 7.85 ERA in six starts since coming off the disabled list.
